Let me start off by saying I work for a law enforcement angency. On 4/19/2012 I was at home eating dinner with my family. When someone knocked on by door. I answer the door to find 2 salespeople, asking if I knew anything about the NCA contest they were in. I told them no, they both started talking at the same time. I told them to slow down, and talk one at a time. I listen to their sales pitch. It's always the same one, trying to win points for a trip somewhere I can't afford to go to myself. Last year we had a group of them come though Albany, most of them were arrested of outstanding warrants. I asked to see their permit from the city of Albany. They said their handler has it, he said they would lose it if they held on to it. Ok, I believe that, and I'm hungry, all I want to do is eat my dinner. So they tell me I have to pick out 3 magazines. I pick out 3 and only purchased 1. When it came down for the time to pay, they wanted me to write the check out to a John Nelson. I told them I couldn't do that, I would make the check out to the company. She explained that she wouldn't get the points until the check cleared. If I made it out to the boss, he would cash it and run it through as a cash order. I then informed them who I work for, that's when the story started to change. That's when both of them started crying and told me a whole other story. I called the Albany Police Department (APD). I detained them until APD arrived. I didn't take a statement from them until APD arrived. Once APD arrived i then separtated them. One girl was from Florida, she wanted to go home but her manager said she owed him money. She couldn't leave until she paid him back. The other girl had 7 felony warrant out for arrest. Once the APD found the van dropping them off in the city for hours at a time. APD took the driver into custody, he had a homocide warrant out of Los Angles, CA. The hotel where the group was staying at has since beed vacated.

If you see these people selling in your neighborhood CALL THE POLICE.

I have since done my homework on this company. Here's what I found out:

John Nelson owns a few companies that have scam written all over them. Here are the ones that I found:

Pro-Tek out of ID. It's a cleaner company door to door selling off the backs of children.

Capital Subscription Agency LLC. out of Buford, GA again only employees people ages from 18-24. This company has 261 BBB complaints against it.

He owns the Nation Field Selling a*s. a web site to make people believe they are doing good things for the people the enslave. The web site states it's a non-profit organgastion, but if you order hotel rooms from them they "Get a Piece".

Blue Diamond Subscription out of Phoniex, AZ. This company has an F rating from the BBB. Lack of infromation on the company.

US Circulation LLC. this company has the same address as Capital Subscription Agency. Which has 315 BBB complaints for "Not receiving the goods paid for."

Travel Jobs Unlimited LLC. this is where he personally lives in Grand Junction CO a web site to recruit young people.

USSC Travel .com a web site to convince consumers they are a legit company.

and the lastest scam: American Freedom Circulation out of Las Vegas.

Owner and Employee Are Not Telling The Truth

AUTHOR: David - ()

The employee and owner that claim they have no affiliation with American Freedom Clearinghouse are not telling the truth.

A (very) quick search of the Nevada Secretary of State Website shows, that in fact, AFC Services and American Freedom Clearinghouse are owned by the same person(s).

Don't believe me? Here is the link to the Nevada SOS.

Response to false report

AUTHOR: American Freedom Circulation - (USA)

I first would like to say that American Freedom Clearinghouse is in know way associated with any of the above listed companies or owned by John Nelson. American Freedom Clearinghouse operates under strict guide lines that follow all state and city ordinances in each and every state and is currently in the process of setting new trends in the industry in regards to compliance with all city and state legislature. I would like to say that the company is less than 2 months old and is bound to draw attention from it's competitors in regards to how we do business, because we follow all these guide lines. Further more we are more than happy to field any complaints in a timely manner and make our clients as satisfied as we can. We welcome all feedback but shun fictitious accusations as we feel they do not warrant the time and effort we should be spending with real clients.Thank you for taking the time to read this comment and we truly apologise for any inconvenience that it may have caused you.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company


AUTHOR: tmreagan - (United States of America)

I want to start off by saying. The person making the report is an officer impersonator. He has already done federal time for impersonating a federal marshal, getting a man arrested in an airport, on false reports. Us as a company have never been to Albany NY. We have never been to the East Coast while being American Freedom Clearinghouse, LLC. We have all the right tax forms and we are legally registered in Las Vegas as well as Colorado. Theres nothing false or scam like about our company. The person saying he is this officer, is a competitive owner of Blue Diamond Subcriptions. Brandon Stice has been on television for lying to a community in Washington state. About what program they truly represent. Also has Felony warrants. Not very Liable. Company phone number is 7027783610 if you have anything further. Thank you.

#4 UPDATE Employee

The uninformed voice of law enforcement speaks out!!!

AUTHOR: joshua - (United States of America)

My name is josh and i am an employee in the permit department for American Freedom Clearinghouse llc. . Our company is in no way associated with any of those listed companies  that were mentioned. I would like to mention that lately it seems that people are using the position as law enforcement as a occupation as a ensuring aspect of their information being fact.
 I understand that the kids that solicited the residence were being deceptive. The name has no affiliation with American Freedom Clearinghouse LLC. , nor does any of our company leaders condone a check being written in their name.
 I suggest that research be done before you go including company names that have no business being done with you.
 Also , if you do your research ....... Afc has no complaints reported online, nor are any orders that have issues regarding them left unresolved. We have a awesome customer service department that works very hard to keep our customers satisfied.
 If you would like to contact me :(((ROR redacted))) is a line to do so. I would be more than willing to educate you.
